Take your pick from zany rides, stage shows, prancing with your favorite cartoon characters or simply splashing in the water. Other attractions include fireworks, gospel conventions, live concerts and motorcycle events.
THE RIDES WERE GREAT BUT THE RESTROOMS WERE VERY DISGUSTING!!! ANOTHER CUSTOMER SAID SHE COMPLAINED TO THE MANAGER 3 TIMES.... THEY WERE NEVER CLEANED FROM THE TIME WE ARRIVED TIL THE PARK CLOSED!!! WOULD LIKE TO VISIT AGAIN BUT NOT IF THE RESTROOMS WONT BE CLEANED!!!!!!!
Every year my family & I go to KingsDominion. We enjoy the water slides & we enjoy trying out the new rides of the season! Although it can be a bit expensive we still have fun. We suggest bringing food and beverages from home and eating out side the park to save some $. We live about 15 min. From SixFlags America in Maryland and it's no where near as fun as KingsDominion! KingsDominion keep up the good work!!!
The cost to get in is average to get into a park if you buy online tickets are only $33. I have been to kings Island in Ohio a few times and loved it. Kings Dominion is not nearly as nice its pretty run down. The roller costers are not worth the wait in line. I spent 3 hours there and I was over it. I am really happy I went to Richmond. Its a great city with lots to do. I do not recomend that anyone go to kings Dominion.
Park was under staffed, not helpful with language barrier, long lines, fees for extra's at park way too high ex: go carts, extreme skyflyer. Food was expensive and bad. Lost my child and was like i was all alone in the search because of long response time and they search park by FOOT not scooter or cart by FOOT.
Kings Dominion seems to have not paid attention that the US is suffering in one of its greatest economic recessions since WWII. Despite this fact, the Cedar Fair Company believes it is acceptable to charge consumers $15 for the use of lockers at their swimming facility, $3.79 for water, $10 for parking. In addition, be prepared to pay additional fees when you enter the park for what I call "optional rides." Kings Dominion charges you an additional $8 to ride go carts which are not included in the $50 plus price of admission (and the list goes on).
The park itself has some amazing coasters but is very much understaffed and very poorly managed. Lines for basic food concessions on slow days will run around 25-30 minutes due to poor staffing. In addition, expect to pay around $40 plus for a lunch for four.
I personally examined Cedar Fair's financials to see if any specific trends were occurring. Surprisingly enough, their CEO Richard Kinzel received $2.53 M in salary and exercised $11.78M in options for a grand total of $14.31 in compensation. I did not realize the cost of living went so far up in Sandusky, Ohio!
The bottom line here is that America is suffering and we continue to see corporations take advantage of the middle class. American families are trying hard to stretch their money this year which one might assume include a day trip to Kings Dominion. Cedar Fair you should be ashamed of yourselves for trying to take advantage of American families. In closing, if you feel like waiting in enormous lines, feeling cheated and spending lots of money for the good of our friends in Sandusky, Ohio then come to Kings Dominion!
I used to go to Kings Dominion as a kid, and for some reason the place didn't seem as fun as I remembered it. But the kids loved it, and that's what mattered.
We felt cheated by the "virtual reality" game on the 'midway'--$5 per person. They catch you: You see a group of people with the visors on and holding their joysticks. The are screaming and jumping and running in their seats. Looks Great! Then you "play" it yourself and it turns out that there's a "coach" telling you to scream, lean to the right, jump, etc.
Anyway, the Water Works were great fun, the kids can't wait to go back again.
We went on a weekday, avoided long lines. And stop by a local Giant grocery store for discount tickets.
Oh... the food is way too expensive. Bring a picnic if you can.
i liked this place b/c it's the onlt good theme park for great thills and a good time. Busch Gardens is o.k. but that place is too high and u have two different parks but with Kings Dominion HAVE THEIR WATER PARK INSIDE THE THEME PARK SO U DONT HAVE TO PAY FOR 2 ADDMISIONS
I really love the roller coasters, but they don't really have any shows there. One roller coaster that I really like is the Volcano! The food is really expensive. I would pack a lunch or go to the Burger King across the street. Otherwise you'll have loads of fun! Great place for kids. All the Nickelodeon stars are there. Great place, just a little expensive!
